The magnificent Villa Ananda offers you a contemporary luxury getaway in the tropical oasis of the southern zone of Costa Rica! Situated on 3200 square feet overlooking breathtaking views of the South Pacific Ocean, this four-bedroom Bali-style home has the perfect blend of serenity, luxury, and adventure. Surrounded by incredible biodiversity on all sides and only a two-minute drive away from a pristine, private beach nestled in the Marino Ballena National Park, you’re sure to make the most of paradise!
This unique and elegant residence is furnished with one-of-a-kind pieces from both local and international artisans. All décor has been chosen to amplify the natural space and light, airy atmosphere of the home, maximizing your relaxation and tranquility. The large, covered outdoor living and dining spaces seamlessly flow into the gourmet kitchen and indoor living area, all featuring breathtaking views of the whitewater Pacific. Tropical wooden finishes and lovely artwork can be found throughout the décor, completing the oasis-like feel.
The fully equipped gourmet kitchen comes complete with state of the art appliances, all designed to ensure you have delicious, homemade meals whenever you desire. While you’re cooking, open the folding glass windows to expansive ocean and sunset views to create an open-air ambiance. The Indonesian and indigenous influence continues on in the kitchen and dining room’s design – you’ll love settling in around the wooden dining table to enjoy the expansive views as you dine.
With four bedrooms, eight guests can sleep comfortably in this marvelous retreat. The main home features two spacious master suites, each with king-sized beds and offering ocean and wildlife views from every vantage point. Both master suites have luxury linens and towels, spa robes, and private bathrooms with distinctive Bali-style stone vanities. Both also feature luxurious outdoor showers overlooking the sprawling ocean and jungle. The third bedroom in the main house features a jungle view and has a comfortable queen-sized bed and a private bathroom.
The casita is adjacent to the main villa, offering privacy but within close proximity. This space offers a one-bedroom studio with a queen bed, bathroom, walk-in shower, living area, and kitchenette. Relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of natural splendor and abundant wildlife. The casita is fully air-conditioned and features an open design, perfect for couples and families who would like a more secluded experience.
“Ananda” means bliss or divine joy in Sanskrit, and that’s exactly what this gorgeous retreat provides. During your stay, relax in the refreshing waters of your infinity swimming pool as you gaze out at the sea keeping an eye out for humpback whales and dolphins in their natural habitat. The hand-crafted, Bali-inspired Yoga Shala sits surrounded by tropical rainforest and is available for yoga, meditation, tai chi, qigong, and other mind-body-spirit practices. Located just a two-minute drive from the pristine, private beach for our development at Ballena Beach, you always have the option to head to the beach! We provide beach towels, chairs and boogie boards! And the villa is quipped with an outdoor shower for your use after an exhilarating time at the beach.
Villa Ananda sits up 400 meters from the ocean at the lower part of the mountain in the area known as where "the mountains meet the sea," just a quick drive or walk away from plenty of nature, adventure, sport, and relaxation. Villa Ananda offers easy access which is uncommon in the southern zone of Costa Rica. The property is about halfway between Uvita and Ojochal, and 27 miles south of Dominical, with plenty of excellent swimming, beachcombing, and surfing beaches along the way. Nearby towns boast incredible options for seafood and local dining, as well as farmers markets and artisanal shops to peruse. For some incredible views and natural splendor, head to Marino Ballena National Park for whale watching, Corcovado National Park for excellent biodiversity, or Playa Dominical to catch some awesome waves.
Villa Ananda is perfect for those who want to immerse themselves into a serene, tropical atmosphere that will awaken your senses and soothe your soul!
